Hans Zimmer proposes to partner during London concert

The 65-year-old, who is known for composing music for films such as Inception, Dune, and The Lion King, brought his partner onto the stage towards the end of the show at The O2 arena. "There's one more thing. So this is the woman I love, apparently she loves me," he told the audience. "Why did I bring her up here? I was going to ask you something really important. Did you lock the back door? Is the milk in the fridge? Do we have any sorbet in the freezer?" Hans Zimmer told the audience during his show.
